Digital Fundraising in Kyrgyzstan

In Kyrgyzstan, foreign funding is a major source of support for civil society organizations. However, in recent years it’s become harder to secure this funding. Kyrgyz organizations are trying to address this by reaching out to communities to develop new, local sources of fundraising. Experiences in many other countries have demonstrated that digital fundraising may be a new opportunity to reach potential local donors. This ICNL report explains what methods are available, how they work, and how they are regulated. Download the report here (available in Russian and English).
